Snowy Sunday at Lambeau Field

It was an instant classic at Lambeau Field, while the snow continued to fall harder throughout the game. The Packers came into this game with a 7-2 record looking to improve to 8-2 and maintain a large lead in the NFC North. The Packers started the game with a defensive stop and forced a punt. The Packers quickly game the ball back to the Panthers and they made quick work and drove down the field and scored on a touchdown pass, making the score 7-0 Panthers.

The Packers quickly took advantage and scored on the following drive on another touchdown run by Packers running back Aaron Jones making the score 14-10 Packers.

Week 10 Preview-Packers vs. Panthers

The Packers face the Panthers in week 10 of the NFL season.

The Packers look to bounce back after a disappointing loss in their week 9 match-up vs. the Chargers as they were 3.5 point favorites and ended up losing 26-11. The Packers will be hungry for a win after a shocking loss like that. They currently sit at a record of 7-2 looking to improve to 8-2 as they are 5.5 point favorites to win against the Panthers at Lambeau Field. The key to a Packers victory will be trying to slow down the Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey who is leading the NFL this year in many categories. If we can manage to control him somewhat and slow him down it should be a relatively easy win for the Packers at home against the Panthers. The Packers aren’t dealing with a lot of injuries right now which is good but that is not the same case for the Panthers who just put their franchise quarterback Cam Newton on injured reserve. Backup quarterback Kyle Allen has been starting for him for a chunk of the year due to injury problems with Cam Newton. The Packers are currently in first place in the NFC North and have a controlling lead and are looking to keep it that way. The Panthers are currently in second place in the NFC South which makes this a key game for them if they want a shot at winning their division and make the playoffs. See you on Wednesday for the recap. Go Pack Go!

Week 9 Summary- Packers vs. Chargers

Chargers running back Melvin Gordon hurdles Packers defender

Let’s just say the Packers struggled week 9 against the Chargers where they were expected to win easily. The Packers were 3.5 point favorites but it turned out to not be correct whatsoever and the final score ended up being 26-11 Chargers. The Packers offense really struggled to move the ball in this game and the defense had one of their worst performances of the year, overall, a forgettable game for the Packers. The Chargers started off holding the ball for the first 8 minutes of the first quarter and ended up with a field goal making the score 3-0 Chargers. The following Packers drive is where the offense began their tough day with a three and out ending with a sack on quarterback Aaron Rodgers by Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa. Once again the Chargers drove down the field but settled for a field goal once again making the score 6-0 Chargers. The Packers once again didn’t move the ball at all and the drive ended in another sack for the Chargers defense which resulted in the Packers punting the ball back to the Chargers with the lead 6-0. The Chargers once again drove down the field and it ended in another field goal making the score 9-0 Chargers heading into halftime with the Packers receiving the second half kick off. The Chargers were really struggling to score in the red-zone which was giving the Packers the chance to stay in the game.

Hopefully the Packers have a better game next week when the take on the Carolina Panthers. See you Saturday for pregame analysis!

Week 9 Preview- Packers vs. Chargers

The Packers will travel to Los Angeles to match up against a struggling Chargers team that has a 3-5 record. The Packers are coming off of a great win on Sunday night football against the Chiefs in Kansas City improving their record to 7-1. The Packers have good news coming into this week, star receiver Davante Adams was upgraded to questionable on the injury report which means there is a chance he will play for the first time in 5 weeks since suffering a foot injury. The Packers have fared well without him but it would still be great to have him back. The Packers have a chance to improve their record to 8-1 following this week and are a 3.5 point favorite at the Chargers home stadium. I believe that the Packers will win by more than 3.5 and my prediction for the final scores is 38-21 with Aaron Rodgers having another big game and solidifying his case as an MVP candidate. Between both teams there are not a lot of injuries but the most important one is definitely Davante Adams, he would be a very crucial and important addition to the Packers roster for the week. See you for the game recap on Wednesday and as always, Go Pack Go!

Week 8 Summary: Packers vs. Chiefs

Aaron Rodgers eludes a defender outside of the pocket Sunday Night vs. the Chiefs

The Packers came into this game with a 6-1 record and were looking to make it 7-1 against a Chiefs team that is having a good year but was without MVP starting quarterback Patrick Mahomes. The Packers got off to a quick start and scored on their opening drive on a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to running back Aaron Jones to make the score 7-0 Green Bay. The Chiefs had a field goal opportunity with 4 minutes left in the 1st quarter and they missed from 50 yards giving the Packers the ball back with less than four minutes remaining in the quarter. The Packers then quickly drove down the field and scored on one yard touchdown run by Packers running back Jamaal Williams making the score 14-0 with the Packers on top and off to a fast start. The Chiefs took over the ball at the start of the second quarter and had a long drive down the field and scored on a 29-yard touchdown strike from back-up quarterback Matt Moore to tight end Travis Kelce to make the score 14-7 Green Bay. The Packers failed to score on the following drive, giving the Chiefs the chance to tie the game up getting close to half time. The chiefs took advantage of their opportunity and scored on a thirty yard touchdown run by wide receiver Mecole Hardman tying the game up at 14 a piece and giving the Packers the ball with short time left in the first half. The Packers ended up giving the ball back to the Chiefs with 3 minutes left in the first half and giving them a chance to lead the game at halftime after starting the game off with 14-0 lead. The Chiefs took advantage and kicked a field goal making the score 17-14 Chiefs heading into halftime.

The Packers took over possession late in the 3rd quarter and ended up scoring on a miraculous throw from Aaron Rodgers to Jamaal Williams in the back corner of the end zone, making the score 24-17 Packers. The Chiefs tied the game up at 24 on the following drive putting some major pressure on Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers to perform and give his team the lead back with 8 minutes remaining. The Packers answered quickly with a 67-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Jones making the score 31-24 which is the score I predicted for this game in my previous blog.(I’m very proud of myself for this one :)) This ended up being the final score of the game and the Packers improved their record to 7-1 on the year with a commanding lead in the NFC North.

Week 8 Preview- Packers vs. Chiefs

Packers vs. Chiefs in a previous year.

The Packers are off to a hot start this year with a record 6-1 and a blowout this last week against the Raiders. The Packers week 8 match-up is against the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday Night Football in Kansas City. Based on the spread, the Packers are 4.5 point favorites against the Chiefs in Kansas City mostly based on the fact that Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is out this week after suffering an injury last week. This is obviously a big deal, because Mahomes is the reigning NFL MVP from last season. The Chiefs replacement for this game will be veteran quarterback Matt Moore who has a lot of experience playing in the NFL as a back-up quarterback but he doesn’t have a lot of experience leading a team as the starting quarterback. The Packers look to continue their hot streak and move their record to 7-1 against a good chiefs team that is missing its starting quarterback. A loss to a team without their starting quarterback would for sure be an issue. The Packers will most likely be without star receiver Davante Adams for a 4th straight week, the Packers have been fine without him, but he would be a nice addition back to the team for the match-up against the Chiefs. I believe even without Patrick Mahomes playing for the Chiefs it will still be a close game. My prediction for the score will be the Packers winning 31-24 with another solid performance from Aaron Rodgers and the Packers defense. Have a great weekend and see you on Wednesday for a game recap. Go Pack Go!

Week 7 Summary: Packers vs. Raiders

The Raiders started the game with a long drive down the field that was halted by the Packers defense that ended in a 45-yard field goal for the Raiders making it 3-0, but it didn’t take the Packers offense very long to get going fast. The offensive game for the Packers started out very quick and they drove down the field and quarterback Aaron Rodgers started off his hot day with a 21-yard touchdown pass to Packers running back Aaron Jones making the score 7-3 Green Bay. The next Raiders drive ended in a 3 and out for the Packers defense who is off to a great start this year. The Packers next drive ended after obtaining one first down and then stalling out. The next drive for the Raiders ended in a touchdown pass from Raiders quarterback Derek Carr. The following drive for the Packers would eat a lot of clock and the Packers would drive down the field and score on a touchdown pass to Jamaal Williams from Aaron Rodgers, giving him his 2nd touchdown pass of the game and making the score 14-10 Packers. The Raiders had a great next drive going until quarterback Derek Carr went for the end zone and fumbled into the pylon giving the Packers the ball back with 2 and half minutes left in the 1st half.

Week 6 Game Summary: Packers vs. Lions

Packers Running Back Jamaal Williams breaking tackles against the Lions.

Coming into this game the Packers were 4-1, looking to stay in first place in their division against a division rival in the Lions on ESPN’s Monday Night Football. The Packers were missing their top receiver Davante Adams for the second straight game, which left the question about who the main target would be for quarterback Aaron Rodgers. That question was answered with the answer of Allen Lazard, young 23 year old wide receiver for the Packers who had 4 receptions for 65 yards and a touchdown in the Packers 23-22 victory over the Lions.

The Lions then quickly drove down the field again and capped off the drive with a 1-yard touchdown rush by running back Kerryon Johnson, making the score quickly 10-0 Lions after just 8 minutes of football. On the Packers next drive they were moving the ball quite effectively but ultimately the drive ended in a fumble by Packers running back Aaron Jones giving the Lions the ball back again without a score from the Packers. The Packers were again able to hold the Lions to a field goal after a long drive making the score Lions 13 and the Packers 0. The outlook for the rest of the game was quite gloomy, but little did we know Aaron Rodgers had something up his sleeve. The Packers were able to drive down the filed with some help from Lions penalties and score to make the score 13-7 Lions on a touchdown run form Packers running back Jamaal Williams. On the following drive the Packers were able to force a punt thanks to a 3rd down sack by Packers outside linebacker Za’darius Smith giving him his 6th sack of the year in as many games. The next drive the Packers settled for a field goal making the score 13-10 Lions at the half, and all of a sudden the Packers were back in it.
